Abstract:

Chaz Perrone might be the only marine scientist in the world who doesn't know which way the Gulf Stream runs. He might also be the only one who went into biology just to make a killing, and now he's found a way--doctoring water samples so that a ruthless agribusiness tycoon can continue illegaly dumping fertilizer into the endangered Everglades. When Chaz suspects that his wife, Joey, has figured out his scam, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner into the night-dark Atlantic. Unfortunately for Chaz, his wife doesn't die in the fall.

Classic Hiaasen

by daviesg (WorldCat user published 2012-04-20) Very Good Permalink

Familiar themes and familiar character types to Hiaasen fans - but what's wrong with that?

The pace of the novel quickens more than usual towards the end with a nicer than average conclusion.

Perhaps one of his better ones.
